Have you ever stopped and thought about what makes a person nice? In conversations with family or friends, you probably used that adjective before when describing someone. Now, is the person nice because they say please and thank or held the door open for you, or does being nice run deeper than that? Does being nice mean you are selfless and humble?  Everyone has different opinions about what makes a person nice, but personally, I believe a nice person has all these traits above plus more. A main focus for me is how the person chooses to speak. Ed Sheeran said, “The tongue has no bones, but can break a heart.”  The meaning behind that is simple: words can hurt, so a nice person to me will acknowledge the power they are given and evaluate the outcome of what will happen if they talk recklessly no matter how easy it may be. They essentially “hold their tongue” making sure what they are going to say will be considerate and useful to others. They use the power of words to raise others, and when we do that, we rise with them. Being nice allows us so many beautiful things in life like healthy relationships with friends, family, and peers.
